In usability we trust

UX and all things web

I’m going independent

I’ve decided to leave my current job as Web Developer/Interaction Designer and start a new career as an Independent Designer/Frontend Developer.

I’ve been keen on doing this for years and now I feel is the right time to do it. Some of you might know that I’m currently on parental leave. This pause from my current employment, makes it all the more naturally to take the leap now.

I will of course miss my colleges and the interesting challenges at my current employer but I’m really excited about going solo and very curios about where this road will take me.

What I’m offering

Services

I will offer services in most things having to do with designing and building User Interfaces, including:

  • User research
  • Usability testing/Expert reviews
  • Wireframing & Prototyping
  • User Interface Design
  • Frontend Development

(I will of course also provide expert services for Google Maps Solutions)

Talks and training

I’m also doing talks and training on different aspects of usability and web techniques. Contact me if you want to know more or need a talk or training that’s tailored for your specific needs.

Available for projects from September

I’m still on parental leave but I will be available for new projects from September 19, 2011. So if you need an Interaction Designer or a Frontend Developer for a project this fall, contact me right away.

    Thats great congrats! I may have a small job for you in the fall (oct/nov).

    One quick question…

    Is there a way to find out if google maps is refreshing their maps slow? I created a mobile app with multiple google maps and on the IPhone an some of our Verizon carriers the map refresh rate can be very slow. I was wondering if there is some event of some sort that I can check for this so I can put up a message to the visitor that google maps is running slow or something…

    thanks.

  3. Mats: Thanks!

    Frank Sounds great!

    Maybe you could check for the first occurrence of the bounds_changed event of the map object, it triggers when the map is fully loaded. But the problem is probably related to latency issues with Verizon and not the Google Data Centers. Generally speaking I would advice against using multiple maps at the same time for iPhone or Android. Maybe you could split them up.

    It would be interesting to check out your mobile app. Could you send me a link?
